Alumni Association Executive Council

We are the voice of Griffins everywhere.

Made up of people just like you — from every stage of life and profession — the Alumni Association Executive Council (AAEC) represents the needs and interests of alumni everywhere. At heart, we are a project-based working group dedicated to improving the alumni experience. The personality, focus, and composition of each project team varies widely, based on the nature of the work and the unique personalities of the individuals involved. Some projects require steady, consistent contributions, while others require only intermittent or periodic involvement. But no matter what the project, the goal is always the same: to connect alumni with each other and the School.

Here are the projects we are working on right now:

Pomfret Alumni President Laura Pierce

Laura Pierce ’03 owns Keeler & Co., a Boston-based boutique interior design firm. Prior to working in interior design, she held roles in development at Rectory School and St. Mark's School, as well as working in special events at Corinthian Events in Boston and in Fine Art in the New York City area.

Laura is an active Pomfret volunteer: She has been a Class Agent since 2003, is a former member of the Headmaster’s Council, and served as Vice President of the Alumni Association Executive Council (AAEC) for three years. Laura has sat on the AAEC since 2011, participating on the Events, Awards & Nominations, and Engagement Committees. She was elected an ad hoc member of the Board of Trustees in February 2014.

While at Pomfret, Laura was a member of the varsity field hockey and lacrosse teams and the JV ice hockey team. She was an honor roll student, dean’s assistant, and the recipient of the Science Award at her 2003 Commencement. Her brother, William “Jack” Keeler '08, is also an alumnus. After Pomfret, she received a B.A. in Art/Art History from Colby College in 2007. Laura lives in Boston and Pomfret with her husband, Vassar Pierce, Pomfret’s Interim Director of Advancement.
